Done concurrently with the tart. Banana cake filled and iced with caramel buttercream, with leftover caramel sauce (for the buttercream) and caramelized bananas. I intended to have a drizzle effect with the sauce, like with seized chocolate, but it’s not thick enough so it ran all the way down. Oh well.

Another lesson learned that I probably should’ve known: caramelized fruits only work when served fresh.

Naturally, the caramel dissolves as it absorbs moisture from the air. Duh. I was pretty happy with the layering, although I got that thicker portion in the center which I tend to do. Poo. The rest of the icing is pretty good, not too copious.

It still was delicious, but that color, well. Next time cake will be served the day of while it’s still golden. Or I could purchase a torch and caramelize them to order. Enough sallow color, ick. Back to happy fresh land:
